MNJTF TROOPS THWART BOKO HARAM LOGISTICS MOVEMENT .... Neutralize One Terrorist, Recover Arms, Unexploded Ordnance Device

"The MNJTF remains committed to eradicate the menace of terrorism and restore peace and security to the region." 

In a determined push to checkmate the activities of terrorists and elements posing threats to national security, troops of 'Sector 2' Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) based in Bagasola, Chad, as part of the ongoing Operation Lake Sanity 2, have recorded success in its operations.

Reports of a coordinated operation reveal that an ambush conducted on 13 May 2024 on Litri Island, situated on the border between Chad and Nigeria in the Central Lake Chad, resulted in the neutralization of one terrorist. 

A statement by Lieutenant Colonel  Abubakar Abdullahi, Chief Public Information Officer, N'djamena-Chad disclosed that "troops were able to recover several items from the operation, including one AK 47 rifle, 2 x magazines, one unexploded ordnance device, a mobile phone, and other personal belongings. 

"This marks a blow to terrorist capabilities in the area." The statement by Lt. Col. Abdullahi read.

The statement further noted that this feat did not deter the troops as they continued their onslaught.

"Complementing this success, on 11 May 2024, troops from 19 Brigade 'Sector 3' MNJTF disrupted a logistics movement by Boko Haram terrorists in the Burwarti area of Kukawa LGA, Borno State, Nigeria. The ambush led to the capture of 2 motorcycles, one Baofeng radio, 4 bags of millet, and various miscellaneous items. 

"Following this operation, on 12 May 2024, a clearance operation from Burwarti to Daban Masara resulted in the intercept of a civilian vehicle by troops. The vehicle, driven by Mr Baba Ado, carrying passengers and empty baskets towards Daban Masara, was found 6km east of Burwarti. After a thorough search and interrogation, Mr Baba Ado, who was on the 19 Brigade’s watch list, was detained for further investigation.

The relentless troops went further to add to these successes, and on 13 May 2024, the Nigerien Gendarmerie in "Sector 4' MNJTF located in Diffa, Niger Republic, seized petroleum products concealed within sacks of maize cereals. This operation, conducted about 5km from the main road on the outskirts of Diffa town, thwarted an attempt to smuggle these products past security checkpoints; products that were destined for terrorist groups operating within the Lake Chad Basin.

The statement noted that "these collective efforts significantly undermine the logistical and operational capabilities of terrorists in the Lake Chad Basin region. 

"The MNJTF remains committed to eradicate the menace of terrorism and restore peace and security to the region."
